Ever walk into a space & have it just




Have it feel yuck & stuck?

I know I have. That feeling is a very real thing!
It’s the vibrational frequencies of the space interacting with your electromagnetic field.
We naturally crave an environment that feels energetically welcoming.

A home or work space that’s vibing with feel-good energy is one that you feel at home in, that you feel positive in, that inspires creativity & good conversation.

It’s a place you enjoy doing your favorite things in or allows you to relax, meditate, read…and on and on.

Since a good-feeling space is not a vibrational match to negative feeling frequencies, you’ll be less likely to have arguments, sadness or even uneasy feelings in a space that’s been energetically-tended-to.

The good news is there are some vibrational things you can do (some involving crystals) to help make your space more inviting and even create a sacred space of your own. So let’s get into those:

9 Easy Ways to Raise the Vibration in your Home or Work Place
1. Clear the clutter & do some physical cleaning – I know this one doesn’t feel like much fun & not even very metaphysical, but it’s a must-do before you do anything else!

A space that’s filled with clutter or dust is energetically clogged & not allowing the energy to flow, not allowing the stagnant negative feeling vibes to clear out. So, get to de-cluttering first & then dust, vacuum & just make the space sparkle.

You’ll feel the change right away!

2.  Use essential oils – 100% pure essential oils (organic fair-trade & sustainably harvested preferred!) are high vib’ing. You can add them to your space in a couple of ways. You can actually use them to help clean in the above step.

Here’s a great video with more on how you can use them for cleaning your space:

Then once the cleaning is done, keep the vibes high in your space by using the oils in an oil burner or a diffuser.

NOTE: If you’re doing this in your work space be sure to get permission from those around you! B/c the oil scents may not agree with everyone & I’d like to keep you outta the trouble zone.

3.  Salt Lamps – these are great for inducing negative ions into your environment & for restructuring the energy of our environment. Plus they shine a soft beautiful & comforting light that does wonders for our energetic state. 

I have a full-on blog post all about salt lamps & their benefits here.

And these days you don’t even have to go to a specialty metaphysical shop to get them! You can find them in any home-ey type store. I found these in Bed, Bath & Beyond…

4.  Crystal Placement – simply place crystals throughout your space intuitively; wherever you think they feel or look best.

Just having the crystals in your space will entrain the energy around you. Whenever you enter the space, you’ll feel the difference from a space that isn’t as vibrationally aligned.

5. Crystal Grids – creating a crystal grid is a way to organize or structure the energy from your crystals towards a specific intention. So it’s more advanced than just placing a crystal in the space.

I have a blog post here and a best-selling book here that I wrote all about how to do a crystal grid. It’s kinda my thang. 🙂

Something I really like to do to restructure the energy of the space is to grid the entire room.
You can grid a room by simply taking 4 clear quartz points and putting one in each corner facing inwards towards the center of the room. Then just let them communicate with each other.
6. Sage Smudge –  Pick up a smudge stick, or loose sage (usually white sage is used for the purposes of clearing out) and burn it slowly (after you light it blow out the flame & it will cont. to smolder & smoke) in a fireproof safe bowl, dish or shell like an abalone shell. 

Allow the smoke to waft around & smudge the space.

Some like to use a feather or a ceremonial fan to control where the smoke goes a bit, like into tight corners & to help spread the smoke around.  It also helps to keep the smoldering sage stay lit.

NOTE: You can use a gem elixir smudge spray if the smoke from burning sage will bother you or isn’t appropriate in your work place (cuz it’s not).

C’mon, do you want to be caught standin’ there with your burning sage & smudge fan with the smoke alarm blaring & the sprinklers going off in your work building?

Didn’t think so.

7.  Sound Clearing – We can easily use acoustic energy to restructure the energy of our space (it’s all about sound vibrations). Very easy to do!

You can use any sort of high amplitude (loud) acoustic instrument, but I prefer to use something that’s pleasing to my ears:

  • tingshas
  • crystal singing bowl
  • Native American drumming

There are many more options than this. Take your pick! You may also choose to put on a CD or a sacred space music station like this one.

8.  Let Mother Nature in – open up the windows & grow indoor plants.

Mother Nature induces negative ions & that’s a GOOD THING for our spaces. So as much as possible allow nature into your space!


9.  Feng shui your space

I am no feng shui expert but I do believe in the powers of inducing the correct energy into your space through the proper placement & alignment of objects. For this I’m going to refer you to a good source to get you started.

And lastly, I’ve got a FREE Crystals and our Sacred Spaces eKit to help you pull all these elements together. In it, you get tons of sparkly inspiration on creating a sacred space all your own.

If you haven’t picked yours up yet…you can do that here.

How Often?
I’m usually asked how often we should do these things to keep our spaces sacred & energetically tended to.

My feeling is you can never do too much of it…but if I had to give you a guideline, I’d say shoot for once/month. And if something has occurred in your space that has made you feel uncomfortable or bad in any way then do something right then to raise the vibes.

Are you gonna try out some or all of these tips & raise the vibration of your space?  Do you feel the difference?  I know you will! Share your experience in the comments below.

1. Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Himalayan Salt Lamps (you love those freakin’ Salt Lamps!)
[caption id="attachment_15786" align="alignright" width="297"] Topaz is a smart cookie, you know![/caption]


I get a lot of questions like these about Himalayan Salt Lamps:

What’s the big deal about these Himalayan Salt Lamps?

Do they really do what everybody says they do?

So the major thing that Himalayan Salt Lamps “do” is that they induce negative ions into your environment. (We’ll get to that in full post!!!)

I have 1 in my sacred crystal studio. He’s super heavy & pretty darn big…comes up to my knee.  I really like to have a salt lamp in just about every room of our home (2 in the bedroom; we have 1 on each of our night stands on either side of our bed.)

2. The Ultimate Guide to Shungite (HOTTEST new stone on the market)
Shungite, shungite, shungite!

This stuff came out on the new age stone-lovers scene about 3 years ago & made quite the big splash. I’m not sure why it suddenly became so popular but it’s not usually listed in the older, more popular crystal property books so people are often left wondering & asking me lots & lots of questions about it.

There are numerous web articles out there that make lots of unfounded claims about shungite so I really felt the need to finally get this blog post out there.

3.  3 Crystals to Mega Boost Your Self-Esteem (really struck a chord)
Have issues with worthiness? Self-Worth? Self-esteem? Self love?

Well, I’ve got some crystals for you!

Yes, I’ve got some crystals to help boost your feelings of worthiness, or boost your self-esteem, your self-worth. 

You know, a lot of us have issues with this.  Because…maybe we’ve been bullied.  Perhaps, there are people in our lives that talk negatively to us or criticize us for every little thing we do. 🙁

After a while you start to believe that stuffs.  Keep in mind, they’re being this way b/c you’re not just like them, because of their own feelings of low self-esteem & low self-worth.

4. WARNING: If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them? (watch out!)
If Toxic Crystals Are So Bad, Why Do Some Recommend Them?

Well, I really cannot say why some recommendations don’t give at least a fair warning, but I suppose that most who are recommending the crystals assume the danger is low. Sometimes it is…and sometimes it isn’t.

Here’s a really good question I was recently asked by a student:

If Cinnabar is a toxic crystal why do crystal healing books recommend it?

For that matter, why would anyone recommend working with ANY toxic crystals at all?

5.  Is The Power Of Quartz A Scam? (explains the science behind HOW quartz crystals work…you eat up that science shiz as much as I do!)
Is the power of crystals & quartz energy a scam?  No way!

How will I prove that to you?  By throwing some science at it, of course!

Quartz is amazing in so many ways.  It makes up some of our very favorite crystals to work with:

  • clear quartz
  • amethyst
  • citrine
  • smokey quartz
  • rose quartz

7. Sparkly Ideas for Using Crystals with Children (Kids + Crystals; an effortless combo)
I’m so excited about this one, because I get asked about this a lot, and it’s one of my favorite subjects to talk about, it’s:

Crystals for Children

Sometimes I’m asked what crystals are good for kids to bring with them to school, to calm down their energy because sometimes, some  children have a lot more energy than others.

So, we have part A & Part B of this discussion:

  • Calming down a child’s energy if necessary
  • Crystals kids can have in their bedroom or for school to help them feel safe + protected (perhaps against nightmares), that will also help transmute negative energy so that it’s perceived by them as neutral and not perceived as “negative”; a handy tool for them to have in their pocket.

    8. Can I share deep? Some stuff you didn’t know about me… (some personal stuffs about me)
    Tag, you’re it!

    I got “tagged” by Flora Sage (one of my buddies from YouTube) for an Intuitive Tag/Challenge.

    I thought I should also post this here on my blog b/c many of you don’t follow me on YouTube & in this video I share a lot of fun personal stuffs that I would really love to share with YOU.

    The Share:

    1.  Share your first paranormal experience that comes to mind

    The first thing that comes to my mind is when I saw a UFO when I was 3-years-old.  I still think to this day that it  was a UFO or possibly more than one even, started when I was about 3.  It never escalated to contact or anything like that, but it began my experience. A number of other incidences have happened over my lifetime as far as viewing, seeing UFOs.  I already did a video explaining that whole experience.  It was quite interesting.

    9.  Crystals for your living space & can I squeeze into an amethyst crystal?(practical crystal info to make your home a Happy Sacred Space)

    “Should there be a certain set of crystals or a “crystal mix” for rooms like your living room or living space?”

    I think that it’s not a “should”, but there are definitely things you can do to make your living space feel more comfy; more vibrationally aligned with the type of energy that you’re trying to bring in to a living room or great room living space.

    Usually, that kind of room is a room where everyone likes to hang out, several people will gather for anything & so you want it to be a space that has good energy within it.

    10. The MacGyver Approach to Crystal Healing (do you want to figure this crystal healing shizzle all out & rig it up on your own? Maybe, maybe not.)
    Teenagers sure are funny.

    I miss teaching them science in the classroom. It was so amusing to me that they had discovered older 80’s shows on Netflix that my generation used to enjoy; Walker, Texas Ranger, Magnum PI & MacGyver to name a few. And they would often come to me in the very hands-on, unconventional classroom that I ran, wanting to try to “MacGyver” something up.

    Of course, I always encouraged it (as long as it didn’t involve blowing something up!) So off they went with duct tape & paper clips seeing what they could cobble together. Hysterical!!

    Many of you have asked me this question on my Facebook page;

    “Why can’t I just teach myself all this crystal healing stuff with books or the info available online?”

    So, you want to MacGyver it up?
